JSEYMOUR: It is setup as an access point and hardwired to a router in my house.
I think your phase 1/2 comment is spot on, but why doesn’t it try again? I would like to set a static IP in the b-hyve, but I was never successful in doing so. It can’t be done from a PC (AFAIK) and when I tried it through the app, it kept jumping out of the area that allowed you to set that IP. I gave up.
FYI as I was typing I logged into the b-hyve and once again it was offline. I didn’t log out, but I did a reboot through the firmware on the access point. The b-hyve connected almost as soon as the AP came back online.
